I arrived in Chiang Mai for a very brief 24 hour stay during the beautiful Loy Krathong Festival. Picked Sleep Box as my hotel because it offered something unique at a nice price. Taxi from the airport cost 150baht but the location of the hotel is a bit outside the central city area, roughly a 10-15 minute walk or 5 minute tuk-tuk ride to the Old City.

Upon checking in there is a 300baht deposit for the keys. I went up to my room and was thankful I had spent the few extra dollars for the large room as even it was quite small so I couldn't imagine the size of the lower price options. The room was tastefully decorated and came with all the modern conveniences of TV, wifi, etc... However, upon further inspection, the room definitely needed some maintenance and thorough cleaning. There was considerable mold in the shower area; the toilet was stained; the room was quite dusty; and most importantly the sink in my bathroom did not work - it leaked after every use so I immediately stopped using it.

That being said, Anita at the front desk is very sweet and funny and the property definitely provides a unique experience sleeping in shipping containers. Despite the few small hiccups I'd still recommend the property to other budget minded travelers when in Chiang Mai.

Room Tip: Defintitely opt for the more expensive rooms unless you wanna me in a shoe box.

Found this place in air bnb website but they don't serve breakfast here!

Just 10 mins away from airport by taxi about 150baht only. If travel to the old town area about 15mins tuk-tuk charging about 100baht.

Very refreshing, details in designing every corner and this making a difference of this small property.

Room comes with comfortable bed, TV on the wall, free drinking water, 2 bottle of toiletries and towels. It's sufficient use for simple traveller.

The receptionist Linda very warm I upon arrived in the hotel. But she just worked here for months and not much travel knowledge e.g. Places where to eat near the hotel, what to do in the evening etc. service can be better. Anyway, managed to check-out myself.

Overall very good value and clean. Worth to stay in the box for one night experience.

We found this hotel on agoda after searching through numerous hotels in chaing mai. We booked it because it looked cool and was something completely different. The taxi driver found it quite difficult to get to but nevertheless we arrived and were not disappointed. The hotel looks great. The rooms are modern and clean and also a lot bigger than you expect. We both had a comfortable nights sleep and decided to stay here a second night. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the old city and even further from night bazaar. That wasn't a big issue as we just got a tuk tuk back at night. Definitely recommend a stay at sleep box!

I stayed at the hotel as it was quirky, I have seen hotels made from shipping containers in northern Europe, but not in Thailand.

The rooms was compact (as expected being made from shipping containers), but was very clean and the space was well utilised.

I would use again, and I enjoyed my stay and it was well priced.

I enjoyed our stay in this Hotel. Quirky because it is constructed out of Shipping Containers but is well appointed, fresh and clean.
The Taxi drivers at the Airport took a while to ascertain its location but once decided delivered us to the right location. The Hotel is refreshing due to its contemporary design.
They do not do a breakfast, which is a pity as its location is on the edge of town with no Restaurants close. However Tuk Tuks are easily flagged down and a quick 5 minute ride to the town centre sorts this out. Always take the Hotels card with you to ensure ease of instruction to Taxi or Tuk Tuk drivers when you want to return to the Hotel.

Room Tip: A new Hotel so keep the Hotels Card in Thai and English in your wallet to direct Taxi and Tuk Tuk dr...
